The Times, They Are a-Changin. There are a number of significant changes in leadership around the State of Georgia in 2014. Senator Saxby Chambliss, our senior U.S. senator, announced that he will not seek a third term in 2014, triggering a lively contest to succeed him. Georgia Department of Economic Development Commissioner Chris Cummisky recently stepped down, and was replaced in late 2013 by Chris Carr, former chief of staff for U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson. Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce President Sam Williams retired at the end of 2013 after 17 years of service, and was replaced by Hala Moddelmog, the first woman to run the Chamber in its 154 years history.
